Hello. I just recently joined Mayo Clinic Connect and have been looking for some sort of connection with anyone having lymph nodes removed. Unlike Robbie, I had no breast cancer – lymph node cancer only. I had squamous cell carcinoma in my lymph nodes in the right arm pit. The doctor (Breast Doctor) had to remove all of the nodes. This was in April. Since this time I have been slowly looking for some sort of support group – men/women whomever. Obviously, like Robbie, the support for specifically males appear to be non-existent. That said, I do not care about the gender – just looking for "folks" who have had lymph nodes removed and their experience with it. Right now I am experiencing greater deal of pain since the first of October then what I have had in the past. My doctor (I saw her on Oct 10th) said that it was due to scar's healing and the impact of the 6 weeks of radiation. Thanks in advance for any advice.
